We chose the hotel primarily because it came up cheap. Only stayed in it for one night as we did an extended-day ferry crossing from Hull. It's in very easy access of the town centre (bus 48 or 22), about a 5 minute drive out, and the stop is across the road from the hotel.
The hotel looks very smart and clean inside. The same goes for the rooms. The reception staff are very friendly and happy to help. They were flexible with us, allowing us to check-in ahead of time and also checkout an hour later, although this no doubt depended on the bookings at the time. And because the hotel is not in the centre, it means it's very quiet at night, so no problems getting to sleep or waking up in the night. Oh, and the bed was very comfy!
The only real negative was the price of food in the hotel bar/restaurant. It's way more expensive than it needs to be. The food was good, couldn't really fault it, but there's no need to shell out like that, when you can take the bus into the city and find something better.
We would probably look to stay at this hotel again should we ever do a similar trip. 4/5
